‘Words are not enough’ – Heung-Min Son urges teammates to come back from brutal Leicester Loss

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a brutal reality check after beating Manchester City last week. A fully fit squad a week ago has now lost their main goalkeeper, star midfielder, a pillar in defence and left wingback. Spurs were shellshocked against Leicester City as they lost 4-1, with a critical UCL game awaiting them tomorrow.

Spurs Collapse:

Spurs sit 5th in the table. Son admits that collective standards need to improve in north London, especially with a tough European test at San Siro against Serie A champions Milan to come on Tuesday.

Heung-Min Son has said ahead of a meeting with the Rossoneri: “I wouldn’t say we are confident, but words are not enough. We just have to go there and show on the pitch, that’s the most important thing. I can stand here and speak all day but the most important thing is on the pitch. We have to be as a unit and we have to be all together in the same way. Of course, it will be really tough, don’t get me wrong. We have to be more than ready, more than 100 per cent.”

“We have only a few more days so we have to recover well, eat well, sleep well and go there and give it absolutely everything to achieve our aim. You learn more in a bad performance than in a good one. The performance was really poor and the fans deserve more than they received. We are playing in the Champions League on Tuesday, this was everyone’s dream and we wanted to be in this position last year. This could be the most important game because it’s a knockout stage so we have to bounce back stronger than ever. This will be a very important game. This could be the biggest lesson for us and this lesson should not be happening in Milan.”

Inconsistency is once again proving to be an issue for Spurs in the 2022-23 campaign, with defeat at Leicester coming on the back of what should have been a morale-boosting 1-0 victory over defending champions Manchester City.
